Consultation: Novato | Mill Valley (415) 388-2172

Have you ever wished that you could have a flawless smile – one that lights up a room as soon as you enter? This is definitely an attainable goal that can easily be achieved with porcelain veneers offered at our Novato, CA cosmetic dentist office. 

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain is an excellent material for veneers because it looks so much like natural dental enamel. Veneers are custom-made to match the shade of your own teeth, and the finished result is a flawless, natural-looking smile.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Do for Me? 

One of the significant benefits of porcelain veneers is that your cosmetic dentist can use them to correct a wide variety of smile flaws:

  • Mask cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Disguise the appearance of crooked teeth
  • Cover spaces lefts by gaps between teeth
  • Alter the appearance of severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Lengthen the appearance of teeth

Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?

Porcelain veneers are not only versatile, but they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. The translucent quality of porcelain makes them an excellent choice for a cosmetic dental treatment that is flawless and looks just like your natural teeth – only better! In fact, chances are that no one will notice you’ve had any work done!

There are many over the counter tooth whitening systems on the market today, but none are as effective or provide the same level of whitening as the professional products.  Tooth whitening is the simplest and least expensive way to enhance your smile and restore a youthful appearance.

Teeth can naturally be less than white or may be stained and discolored due to:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Illness
  • Certain medications (such as antibiotics). 

Most common reasons for discoloration are due to:

  • Tobacco use
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soft drinks
  • Wine

Are your gums tender and inflamed? Do they bleed when you brush?

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a common problem that affects nearly half of adults over the age of 30. It is a bacterial infection that attacks gum tissue and supporting structures of your teeth.

Severe gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss. As serious as that is, patients of the Novato, CA gum disease dentist are surprised to learn that there are other serious physical complications associated with the disease.

While periodontal disease, heart disease, and stroke may seem to be completely unrelated, numerous studies show that people suffering from gum disease are at twice the risk for coronary heart disease. Researchers have also found that oral infection is a risk factor for stroke.

Heart Disease and Stroke

We know now that the presence of periodontal disease can aggravate existing heart conditions. Several theories explain the link between heart disease, stroke, and periodontal disease:

  • Oral bacteria affect the heart – There are many strains of periodontal bacteria. Some of these enter the bloodstream and attach to the fatty plaques in the coronary arteries. This buildup contributes to clot formation, putting you at higher risk for gum disease.
  • Immune System – Individuals who have high levels of oral bacteria may also have weaker immune systems. This may set off a chain of events that have been shown to contribute to the onset of specific forms of heart disease.

Seeking Treatment for Gum Disease

Since periodontal disease appears to be a risk factor for both heart attack and stroke, it is essential to seek immediate treatment.

The good news is that with semi-annual exams and cleanings Novato, CA gum disease dentist Dr. Steven McConnell and conscientious oral hygiene, you may never have to worry about developing gum disease. If it’s time for your routine appointment, please call our office
